asked the Secretary of State for Foreign' Affairs whether officers of the new Branch B of the Foreign Service will receive allowances similar to those received by officers in Branch A.

Yes, Sir. They will receive outfit allowances, rent allowances, foreign service allowances (which will take into account the local cost of living as well as that expenditure which an officer serving abroad necessarily incurs over and above that of an officer of corresponding grade serving at home), language allowances and full travelling expenses on leave.
